    Re: 2020 Playoff Push

    Honestly, I feel like this is the week to truly decide whether we should give a hoot or not. Granted, I'm as frustrated as anyone, but I really wanna see some fire starting tonight. They know where they are in the standing and what needs to happen. They're coming off a day of rest and they have a 6 game stretch where they either sim or drown.

    It's time (fine, it's past time, but really, it's now or never for 2020) for this team to earn our fandom and give us a reason to care the last few weeks.


    Show me, Reds. Show me.

    Oof.


    Listless. Uninspired. Just devoid of emotion. Brutal.

    Re: 2020 Playoff Push

    17 games remaining - 09/09/2020
    NL Central 1st - -5.5 Games
    NL Central 2nd - -3.0 Games
    NL Final Playoff slot - -2.5 Games

    Still have 3 games head to head against the Cardinals who are 2nd in the NL Central and the Marlins (8th in NL) can't be above .500 all season can they? Need to just win games....a 11-6 finish... probably would be enough. Maybe even a 10-7 finish could get us in.....

    Cards have to play 23 games in the next 18 days with no day off. It’s going to tax their pitching. They may start to fade.

    With an off day each of the next two weeks, I wonder if the Reds should decide to go with a 4 man rotation the rest of the way.

    If Reds split the last four of road trip, it’s a 5-5 road trip, it leaves them 5 games under .500 with 13 to go. Reds would then need 9-4 finish to reach .500.

    If Reds win 3 of the last 4 of road trip, go 6-4 on trip, it leaves them 3 under .500 with 13 to go. Reds would then need 8-5 finish to reach .500.

    Pretty important for Reds to win 3 of these next 4. This is where that Pirates series stings. That was the time to get the extra win. Still possible, hanging by a thread.

    Especially if the Reds win tonight, do we start Bauer on 3 days rest tomorrow?

    No reason to throw Bauer off his routine yet. If by some miracle the Reds win enough to be in it that last series vs. MIN, they can pitch him on short rest for the last game of the season.

    Change the Title to "Playoff Drag", cause it doesn't seem to want to go like an animal to the vet.

    Reds did not win this road trip, best they can do is a .500 trip.

    Fourteen games to go. They need to go 10-4 to reach .500. They now trail Cards by 3.5, Brewers by 1.5, and are 3 back of the last WC with four teams above them.

    As of today Reds would have the 8th draft pick, only seven teams with worse records. And several front line players have been out injured, who knows when they will return.

    Only hope is an unbelievable upcoming home stand, that would be a surprise.

    The Reds just need to win 14 straight. No problem, right?
